Brutalist Bookends

Scott Kubie is a designer who writes. This is his blog.

Used a couple of Sharpie twin tips and my Baron Fig Mastermind pad to prototype my latest post for the Brain Traffic blog. Normally when I use pen and paper in my writing workflow it’s very messy and haphazard — notes jotted in random places, maybe a partial mind map, maybe a bullet point of outlines. This time I pushed myself to be very deliberate. It only took a few minutes longer than my usual approach but ended up being much more useful.

It was fairly easy to translate it back into an outline, though I ended up restructuring things a bit. The funny thing is I think this sheet does a better job of explaining the main ideas than the post does. Sometimes sentences are overkill. 🤷🏻‍♂️
